The 15 Most 90s Things Ever Found In A Charity Shop
Charity shops are mysterious places. Sometimes they're a treasure trove of untold fortune, other times they're just granny knick-knacks and Jilly Cooper novels. But every so often you find something special: a portal. A portal into a time gone by, a doorway to the greatest decade known to man, the 1990s.
You never know what these portals will look like, which is what makes them so special. But when you see it, you know where it's going to take you. Intrepid explorers before us have discovered such artefacts, buried deep within the caverns of their local Oxfam, and we share them with you now.
